Minnesota State Patrol Squad Cars Get Retro Look

In an effort to make State patrol vehicles more recognizable (along with spending tax payers’ money…), Minnesota State Police announced that they are giving a new or rather, a vintage look to their squad cars. The new patrol vehicles combine a maroon body with white doors and decals that are similar to the ones used from 1960 up until 1991. The current patrol cars incorporate a maroon body with a gold stripe on the side -Continued “The new design aims to strengthen the identity of the State Patrol, enabling motorists to better recognize troopers and how the agency supports safe travel on Minnesota roads,” said a State Patrol press release. “The squads will also improve the visibility of troopers – enhancing trooper safety and helping the agency stand out among other vehicles to encourage safe driving” Via: Twincities , Pic: Minnesota State Patrol
